BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Indiana freshman defensive back Jamar Johnson faces a preliminary charge of resisting law enforcement following his arrest on campus.
Indiana police spokesman Lt. Kevin Lauerman says officers patrolling the Sembower Recreation Sports Fields Complex detected the odor of marijuana Thursday night and saw two people nearby. One of the individuals ran away before returning and Johnson was arrested. He was released late Thursday from the Monroe County Jail.
IU Athletics acknowledged Johnson's arrest in a statement saying the department "will continue to gather facts, cooperate with and monitor the legal process, and take further action as the evolving situation warrants."
